Hi, I'm Tyler. When I'm not biking🚴‍,playing the guitar🎸,or building legos with my kids👦👧👦👶,I'm usually typing up lines of code on my MacBook💻. Even though I received my Bachelor's Degree in Marketing, I started out my career in operations and spent 6 years in operations management for Pepsi and Peapod. Not inspired, I shifted focus to web development, learned to code and have spent the past 4 years as the lead website developer for a local marketing agency.

On the side, I've been honing my development skills with projects and product ideas. I've launched 9 products to-date onProduct Huntand have experimented with hundreds of smaller projects both on my site and the sites of clients that I've had the privilege to create and support. The topics of focus have included SEO, sports, font icons, and business consulting.

Right now, I'm dedicating all possible time to transforming myself from a self-taught coder into a senior level programmer and computer scientist.💯
